End of year goals

I am trying my hand at setting bi-monthly goals, and using a planner to keep track of them as well as my moods and habits. It’s working so far, so today I thought I would share my end of year goals (since it is now November, they will also be bi-monthly goals). Why set them at all?

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen

End of Year Reflection: Love What You Have Done-Comprehend What Didn’t Happen As writers, we all tread the same path, and the end of a year punctuates our successes and failures. I love how we can plan out our goals and follow up on them, success and loss. Many of you have kept me accountable with what I wanted to accomplish and what I managed to do.
